Real Estate - never thought of New Jersey as a hotbed of Surf music but . . .

Another stumbled-upon discovery via Soundcloud. Real Estate are from New Jersey and are practitioners of a delightful blend of post-surf/post-punk/Indie/Alternative/Psych and they do it really well.

Tonights track is Beach Comber and it comes from 2009, just before the band underwent personnel changes.

It's a simple, non-hysterical, highly evocative tune that got repeated plays from me when I first heard it.

Dead of Winter - only seems fitting to run something with a quasi-Surf motif to it, right?

It may not apply to L.A. but I'm sure it scores points on the East Coast right about now.
